Just 40 minutes' by tuk-tuk from Luang Prabang is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Southeast Asia:
Kuang Si Falls
Set deep in the jungle, this picturesque waterfall thunders down numerous levels to create lovely, cool pools perfect for swimming. Both locals and tourists alike flock to the falls to escape the heat of summer, cooling off in the water, scrambling over rocks, jumping into turquoise plunge pools and exploring the surrounding forest.
After you've had a chance to soak, follow the narrow path to the top of the main waterfall for even more fantastic views.
This is a magical place to spend a day in Laos!
